Oathbringer by Brandon Sanderson: 5/5 


oathbringer rly expanded the characters in ways that gave all of them depth and flaws. more and more world building but in that perfect way that is explored when the characters themselves explore it.

Everything about this book and it's author suggests I should be absolutely nuts for Oathbringer. But I'm three books into this series and it's just not cutting it for me.

It lacks nuance, it lacks complexity, and it constantly feels as if I should be trying to solve the story before it happens. Characters repeat themselves internally all the time, sex is treated with all the grace of an edgy mccarthy era romance film, and while the action scenes are fun - it shouldn't feel like the book is always impatient to get to the next one.

It's not my cup of tea. It's my flavor of tea. It's even in a cup I really like. It's good. But when looking at all the different kinds of tea I could drink, it becomes clear that I should spend my time tasting something with a little more depth.

"Are the flaws of the main character(s) a main focus of the book?" Lol

As amazing as Sanderson is (and he is definitely a master at his craft) this one felt overly long to me. It didn't have the same edge-of-your-seat feeling in the suspenseful scenes that the last ones did. Still, we got some serious twists in this one, which I did NOT see coming and quite enjoyed!
